Oh and one question I have too, I think I also saw on this recipe thread that you can replace 1:1 ratio any cane or beet sugar w/ belgian candi sugar, true? Is it wise to still use the belgian sugar? I'm pretty sure the LHBS has it here in SLC Ut.

I've read sugar makes up only 5% of the fermentables in Chimay. The rumor is they use corn sugar too.

I think you have to convert the regular sugar with an acid like lemon juice to make it an invert sugar. It's a pretty simple process where you heat the sugar and add lemon juice. If you search I'm sure you will find the recipe to do it. Basically, you are making your own invert sugar and it's a hell of a lot cheaper than buying candi sugar at the beernut for six bucks a pound or whatever it is.

Actually, since he's doing a 90 minute boil, plain beet sugar will invert automatically in the acidic wort.

MAKING YOUR OWN BELGIAN CANDY SUGAR

make your own. I bought 2# of Lyle's Syrup. Once I use that up, I'll be making my own.

Things are going pretty well for my first AG tonite... the LHBS messed me up a bit, learned a lesson there, they said "OK give me the recipe, I'll make sure you have everythign you need... they didn't give me yeast, had to go back for that... they didn't give me 1.5 lbs of sugar, only 1 and didn't give me any spanish moss! Oh well. I think my mash temp was a touch low. I was at about 147ish instead of 150, but the wort looks awesome...

Excited to see how it turns out, I'll have some photos of the final product.
